We are open to clients Monday’s 9:30 am to 2:00 pm and Thursday’s 2:00 pm to 6:45pm.
We are open for deliveries and donations only at various times during the work week. Please call to make sure someone is there to serve you at 905-847-3988.
The bulk of our non-perishable food comes from food drives held at Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas and ongoing donations from churches, schools, businesses, supermarkets and others in our community.
Financial donations are vital to our existence. We need them to purchase fresh fruit and vegetables, fish meat, eggs, cheese milk, and a variety of other items.
Food and other items purchased for clients account for about 80% of the money spent by the food bank. The balance of the money goes towards typical overhead expenses. We pay no salaries. Tax receipts are issued for financial donations, our charity number is 13173 66662 RR0001.
Monetary donations are vital to our existence. We need them to buy non donated perishable food such as chicken, ground beef, fish, cheese and fresh and frozen vegetables and fruit. A portion of the money pays for the Supermarket gift cards we provide to families at Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Being volunteer run, we pay no salaries. Tax receipts are issued for all monetary donations where appropriate. Charity Registration No. 13173 6662 RR0001
“I have recently become a user of the food bank. I was treated with respect, kindness and comfort as the staff realized I was so very uncomfortable being in a position of such need. I will always appreciate what this group of volunteers did for me and hopefully one day I will be able to repay their kindness.”
